Life Of Yeltsin Shows The Contradictions That Reside In Each Person…..

Just like in our former Texas President Lyndon Johnson.  Just like in each of us.

You can lose sight of this basic fact if you spend to much time with some blogs of both the right and the left. Despite representing different sides of a debate, they often behave in the same all-certain manner. 

These contradictions extend to political parties that are, of course, comprised of plain old fragile human beings. All parties have merits and all parties have flaws.

When you think your cause is white-snow pure is when you lose the capacity for self-reflection.

Here is the BBC obit on Yeltsin. His life is worth considering.

  1. I would like to say it would be nice to live in a world where the death penalty and abortion were not needed. We dont so i support both. If you support one and not the other you are a contradiction. I am often left with the feeling as a parent that I contradict myself but the sugar truth to kids or the do as I say not as I do is all we got to go on as parents. I hope my daughter does not get too many mixed messages from me. There are too many from everywhere else.
